This packet is designed to target common grammar skills for kids at a pre-k/K level using a fun Christmas theme. The activities use visuals and predictable structures to help young children who are typically non-readers practice grammar structures. This packet targets possessive –s, subject pronouns (he, she, they), using “do/does” and “don’t/doesn’t” when asking and answering questions, and using “is” and “are.”
Possessive –s: Pages 2-10: There are 9 different people/characters and each person has pictures of 5 different objects that could belong to him/her. You can have your students complete the sentence at the top of each page, such as “this is Santa’s _______.” You can either cut out the pictures at the bottom of each page and put the picture of the desired object into the sentence or just point to each picture as you complete the sentence. In addition, you could work on answering “who” questions such as “Who would have a hammer?”
Pronouns: Pages 11-15: Your students complete each sentence with the correct subject pronoun (he, she, or they). There are 30 different flashcards and each flashcard contains a Christmas/Winter themed picture.
Plural-s: Pages 16-19: Your students complete the sentences “I have 1 _____” or “I have 2 _____” using the correct singular or plural form of the words. There are pictures of 13 different Christmas objects that your students can use to complete the sentences.
Do/Does and Don’t/Doesn’t: Pages 20-24: There are 5 different worksheets that help your students practice using the words “do,” “does,” “don’t,” or “doesn’t” in questions and statements. Each worksheet asks a question that starts with “do” or “does.” Students can answer the questions using the correct sentence structure. There are 12 possible answers on each worksheet. Students can also ask each other the questions.
Is/Are: Pages 25-28: Students complete sentences with the correct word, either “is” or “are.” The picture cards contain pictures of candy and follow the structure “This _____ (color)” or “These ____ (color).” There are 24 different cards.
